On June 1, we're excited to host our first Butterfly Festival. On that day, we're asking children to release butterflies into the wild at our farm. Also on that day, we'll have a petting zoo, a butterfly garden made with our very own flowers and perennials, face painting, hay rack rides around our farm, corn to feed our chickens, and a display of butterfly houses painted by local artists and children from our community. Of course, we want the children to learn and understand the exciting process of metamorphosis, to do that, parents can purchase a Live Butterfly Garden Hatching Kit at Garden Patch Farms. Call 708.301.7720 to reserve your butterfly kit now!
In order to participate in the butterfly release, you'll need to follow these steps:
1. Purchase the Butterfly Garden Hatching Kit at Garden Patch Farms by calling 708.301.7720.
2. Next, you'll need to send away for your five baby caterpillars (Only $5 for shipping with certificate inside box). Keep in mind, it takes about three weeks to complete the metamorphosis process so get your kit soon and order those caterpillars!
3. When your caterpillars arrive, watch them eat and grow up to ten times their original size!
4. When your caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflies, bring them along on June 1 to release them into the wild!
